Getting That Green On--Despite The Rain Out
Yeah, the game was canceled. Our Washington Nationals and The St. Louis Cardinals will make up the game tomorrow (Thursday afternoon) at 1:10PM. The First Day-Night Doubleheader in New Nationals Park's History. Of course, making that 1:10PM start Thursday is a little problematic. Real Work comes to mind that just might interfere. So, we shall see--playing it by ear.
But, the torrential downpours and lightning didn't take away the fun Sohna and I had--Getting Our Green On. Dressed appropriately for the occasion--we sported Our Green Nationals Tees and Green Caps with RED Curly "W"'s. Teddy got really excited upon seeing The African Queen wearing matching Green--insisting on taking a picture.
And we found out--many others had done the same.
Not only was The Centerfield Gate emblazoned with a Green Carpet.
5000 Fans riding Metro received "Green" Metro Farecards of $2.35.
The NatPack & Clint & The Presidents Wore Green.
So Did My Best Friend!! SCREEECH!!
Even The Ushers wore Green Curly "W" Caps.
But no one beat Tom--Our Washington Nationals Event Coordinator--who wore ONE WILD!! Green Combination Suit. I mean, this thing was OUTRAGEOUS--in a good way. I swear, even in a power outage, those threads would GLARE!! What a SUIT!!
Throughout the evening--The African Queen and I had good time--with everyone else wearing Green. Really it was fun. Folks were having a good time with it.
And since tonight's game was washed out--we will all have the chance to do it all over again. A do-over, as Our Washington Nationals have RESCHEDULED "Get Your Green On" for this coming Monday Night, June 9th when The San Francisco Giants are in DC. So you have another chance to participate--five days from now.
Walking around New Nationals Park tonight during the Rain Delay and subsequent cancellation--the number of people that came up to Sohna and I inquiring about Our Green Caps with RED Curly "W" emblazoned--was stunning. Two guys--at separate times--offered to buy them from us. Our Washington Nationals where selling a White Curly "W" Version in the Team Stores--but for some reason, The Red Curly "W" worn on our heads was attracting attention. Strange actually. For the record--we bought them at Target some time ago around St. Patrick's Day.
Finally--Sohna and I were stopped by Tige tonight. He mentioned that his wife, Elizabeth reads Nats320 regularly. So--as a surprise--The African Queen and I took a picture with Tige for tonight's post. His wife has no idea--until she reads about the moment here. Elizabeth--thanks for reading. Sohna and I appreciate it.
